Liberal filmmaker Morgan Spurlock published an online confessional Wednesday titled “I am Part of the Problem,” recounting examples of his past sexual misconduct.
Spurlock posted a tweet Wednesday evening, linking to a nearly 1,000-word essay describing his past transgressions. “I don’t sit by and wonder ‘who will be next?’ I wonder, ‘when will they come for me?”
Best known for his Oscar-nominated documentary “Super Size Me” — which warned about the potential harmful effects of fast food — Spurlock has been involved in dozens of films and television projects.
One of the incidents Spurlock recounted was a college sexual encounter, described by him as “a one-night stand” was later viewed as rape by the woman.
“She said she didn’t want to have sex, so we laid together, and talked, and kissed, and laughed, and then we started having sex.” After the woman starting crying, Spurlock “tried to comfort her. To make her feel better. I thought I was doing ok, I believed she was feeling better. She believed she was raped.”
The father of two sons, Spurlock also admitted to a history of infidelity and admitted to paying out settlements for his history of verbal sexual harassment would not be public.
“I paid for peace of mind. I paid for her silence and cooperation,” his post reads. “Most of all, I paid so I could remain who I was.”
